Sidney Guberman

Frank Stella is called the father of minimalism. He wanted to reduce his art to the utmost level, and by the 1960s he had purged his painting of nearly all objective elements. All that remained were geometric shapes and colour. ; For Stella, a work of art is more than just a picture painted on canvas – it comprises the entire painting as a physical object. The dimensions of the canvas itself are part of the work. Entitled after Stella’s friend Sidney Guberman, this painting comprises not only a geometric shape; the canvas itself has been cut to conform to the shape.
